Carrot Cake Oatmeal

Carrot Cake Oatmeal
serves 2

1 cup oats
2 cups water
2 shredded carrots
1 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp ginger
2 tsp ground flax
1 tsp vanilla
1 tsp maple syrup
1/2 tbsp extra for topping
3/4 cup fat free greek yogurt, for topping

To start, grind flax and cinnamon together.  Shred carrots, and bring water to a boil.  After the water has started boiling, add carrots, oats, add the ground flax cinnamon mixture and ginger.  Reduce heat to medium, cook for 5 minutes, stirring occasionally.  Remove the oatmeal from the heat, stir in maple syrup and vanilla.  Cover, and let sit for 3 minutes.  Spoon oatmeal between two bowls.  Mix in extra maple syrup with greek yogurt, and spoon on top of the oatmeal.  If you want a little extra sweetness (which I did) pour a little more maple syrup on top after it's in the bowl.
